Outreach Outdoors was founded in 2003 by Scott Phillips, a student minister of 27 years from Florence, AL. Scott has also been an avid outdoorsman since he was 9 years old. In the mid to late 90's, Scott started to take his students hunting and fishing and began to see what a difference being involved in God's creation was making in their lives. Scott felt God calling him to start something involving young people in the outdoors. This was when Outreach Outdoors was birthed in 2003.
Our mission is to "reach young people for Christ while instilling in them a respect and desire for the outdoors". We want to see young people come to Christ and grow in their relationship with them. By getting them involved in the outdoors, it helps to break through walls and tear down barriers which allows young people to open up and talk about the problems that they face day-to-day.
To provide a seven day a week ministry for children, teens and adults while offering them the opportunity to experience the great outdoors. Outreach Outdoors hopes to have its own property and facilities within the next five years so we can offer a seven day a week ministry for young people.
